LETTERS: Differing opinions on proposal

The debate about whether or not the major offices should be gathered together in one building does not mention the convenience.

The debate about whether or not the major offices should be gathered together in one building does not mention the convenience such grouping will provide to people with limited mobility. If one can drive or walk easily, in any weather, it hardly matters where such offices are located.

But if you happen to have any physical handicap, it certainly will be convenient if they are in the same edifice. It seems like a very sensible investment, to me, especially given the body that having Kootenay Commons nearby will add to eco-development of the downtown core.

It seems that Mayor John Dooley is having a hard time accepting the vote taken by the members of the Regional District of Central Kootenay. They voted 19 to one not to accept the city offer. That is 95 per cent voted against the offer. He sounds like a petulant child that does not understand the word NO. Perhaps he should grow up. Unless he is still living with his parents.
